At the end of the day, officer Jeremy Moser says he was just doing his job.
The Dickinson police officer responded to a house fire in South Dickinson on Saturday--and was first on the scene.
Although he would never say it himself...
It's what he did next that makes him a hero.
Law enforcement officers put their life on the line--every day, but it's not everyday you meet a cop like Officer Jeremy Moser.
"There was so much going on in mind at that time, just go in, go in and see if I can locate him." says Officer Jeremy Moser/Dickinson Police Department.
As the first officer on scene, he went into a burning building to save a man.
"There is no possibility that I was going to stand back and wait when there's someone inside of a residence, I would do anything I could, obviously keeping my safety in mind." says Moser.
He was on the fire department for 7 years before joining the police department.
His training and experience with the Marine Corps kicked in.
Thick heat and smoke pushed him out, but Officer Moser went in a third time.
"About two inches off of the floor is the only thing you could see, so it was pretty heavy, pretty much cut the smoke with a knife." says Moser.
"I couldn't see much but the bottom of his feet, pretty much grab on to him..."
He's humble about his heroic action, and quick to commend others that helped him.
"These guys did tremendous, most people just stand back and watch, they got up there..."
As a member of the police department for five years, he's been in several intense situations.
This one ended well.
Saving a life and being able to go home to his family.
"When it comes to law enforcement, a lot of people see the bad side of law enforcement, it's great to see the good side, every once in awhile."
Officer Moser says the man he pulled out was flown to a burn unit in Minneapolis, and is in an induced coma.
Moser was treated and released from the hospital for his exposure to the smoke.
He says what he likes more about being a cop than a firefighter---getting to interact more with people.
